DUTCH CONSORTIUM TO DEVELOP DIAGNOSTIC TOOL FOR ITER

Dutch research institutes TNO and DIFFER joining with companies Active Space Technologies (Europe) and Chromodynamics (Netherlands) have started a research project to develop a diagnostic tool capable of measuring the impurity content of the plasma—important information for regulating neutral beam heating power on ITER. This concerns one of ITER’s first and most important diagnostic systems – the Visible Spectroscopy Reference System (VSRS).


More information can be found on the TNO and DIFFER websites.
